Are You Fueling Your Muscles?

Branch Chain Amino Acids have swept the bodybuilding and fitness industry by storm. Branch Chain Amino Acids (BCAA) have quickly proven to be a foundation in optimizing the best results in your fitness pursuit. BCAA is a driving force to help utilize protein synthesis. Only complication is BCAA is not created within the body. Therefore, BCAA supplementation has become a norm amongst athletes. There are many benefits to BCAA so we take you to the basics.

Muscle Fuel

The body uses BCAA as muscle fuel for the muscles. The aminos keep the body rejuvenated and recharged. The release of insulin after working out with the aminos helps absorption of BCAA significantly.

Promoting Muscle Growth

BCAA are as essential as protein to helping maximize muscle growth. In maximizing muscle growth, lean muscle is simultaneously being built.

Recovery

Since the body is fully utilizing the proteins in the body the muscles are receiving maximum protein synthesis. The body breaks down the protein then enters muscle for full utilization of protein.

Ratios

BCAAs are a combination of 3 main aminos, Leucine, Isoleucine, and Valine. These 3 aminos are key ingredients to a true BCAA. For simpler terms, lets break it down into a formula. Common ratio in order of amino are 2:1:1 and 4:1:1. The Leucine needs to double or quadruple the amount of Isoleucine and Valine. The 2:1:1 formula is common for the casual fitness enthusiast. The 4:1:1 formula is for the more intense fitness athletes. A 2:1:1 ratio consist of 5g of BCAA. To get a 4:1:1 ratio, simply double the scoop.
